Gov Brown: Tell GOP Not To Pass 'Monstrosity' Tax Plan

California Governor Jerry Brown on Monday issued a video via his official Twitter account in which he asks voters to contact their GOP lawmakers in Washington, D.C., and tell them not to vote Tuesday in favor of what he calls a 'monstrosity' in reference to the pending tax reform plan.

 

The governor said in a written statement statement, " (his) message is real simple: The current tax bill in Congress is bad – it's bad for you and it's bad for America."  Brown also wrote, "It's never good to have one party vote one way and the other party vote 100 percent the other way – that's dividing America at a time when we need unity."

Brown claims the tax reform plan finalized by Republican last week is going to increase the national debt more than a trillion dollars.  "We're going to have to pay for that for decades to come. It's not economically healthy, it doesn't make America strong."

The governor also says the plan does nothing to benefit the middle class.  "You know what it really does, it gives massive tax breaks to corporations that are flush with billions and billions of dollars."  Brown insisting that the plan is political payback.  "And who's going to pay for (the plan)? People who live in states that voted against Donald Trump. That's not fair. That's not treating America as one nation, indivisible, with liberty for all of us."

Brown ends both the Twitter video and his written statement with a plea for voters to call their Republican representative and tell them: "Vote no on this tax monstrosity."
